Graphic Biography of Lakshmibai launched

Graphic Biography of  Lakshmibai  launched

New Delhi, Jan 31 (UNI) Close on the heels of the success of ‘Mannikarnika-The Rani of Jhansi’, a biopic on life of the freedom fighter, a graphic biography of her life has been launched.

Campfire Graphic Novels – the pioneers of Graphic novels in India has launched the most awaited Graphic biography of Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi.



This graphic novel biography of Lakshmibai portrays this remarkable woman as she was, without resorting to mythical exaggeration, and depicts how she led her band of troops against the British forces in the backdrop of the Indian uprising of 1857.



The 1857 uprising is considered by many to be India’s first war of independence. The role of Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi, in that uprising has been an inspiration for future Indian freedom fighters and her name has passed into legend as that of a fearless woman who resisted the might of the colonial British forces.



Unjustly deprived of her kingdom by the British, Lakshmibai, ruler of the princely state of Jhansi, mounted a brave resistance against the British while being unwillingly drawn into the sepoy uprising of 1857. Her leadership and bravery captured the hearts of many, friend and foe alike, and till this day, she lives on as a symbol of hope against tyranny in the hearts of countless Indians.

Speaking about the biography, Ms. Girija Jhunjhunwala, Director, Campfire Graphic Novels, said,’’campfire Graphic Novels will publish its latest title in the Heroes series ‘Lakshmibai: खूब लड़ी मर्दानी’. This 112-page graphic novel biography of the Rani of Jhansi tells the inspiring story of one of India’s most famous warrior queens. Her bravery and sacrifice would sow the seeds of further rebellion that would eventually free India from the clutches of colonialism. Campfire hopes that this book will inspire readers to learn more about their nation’s history and the heroic deeds of those before us.”
